Friday 18 January 

What a fabulous start to the year it has been, with Year 6 returning refreshed and energised for this half term’s topic. The children have turned back the clock to the time of Queen Victoria and have begun to ask questions regarding her reign; effects of the Industrial Revolution on Britain and famous names of the era.

After a stint looking at narrative poetry by the likes of Tennyson and Longfellow, the children will set to work researching the life and works of Charles Dickens, with a view to writing a biographical account, developing skills of note-making and organising key information. It is hoped that they will be inspired by his sense of ambition and take time to reflect upon their own aspirations.

Another famous Victorian who will find his way into next week’s science learning will be Charles Darwin. The children will be challenged to carry out a range of tasks to help them make sense of his theory of evolution. Working collaboratively, they will be able to sort statements, draw annotated diagrams and make comparisons between the adaptations of various plant and animal species.

The highlight of this topic will certainly be the trip to the Victorian Schoolroom next week – costumes at the ready!
